GOD’S WORD FOR MARCH 25
GOD’S WORD FOR MARCH 25 ~ ~ Isaiah 40:28 ~ ~ “Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary. And His understanding no one can fathom.”
On a hot summer day, one large tree can pump over a thousand gallons—that’s FOUR TONS of water from the ground to its leaves! The water is collected from the soil through the roots. But the real work of pumping four tons of water, often 100 feet into the air, occurs at the top of the tree. The water is suctioned toward the treetop by three remarkably efficient mechanisms—capillary flow, osmosis, and vacuum pressure. Osmosis and capillary action act in concert to move the water partway to the top of the tree, but the real driving force is the pressure differential created by the leaves within the vessels of the tree. This pressure differential is a result of water evaporating from the leaves of the tree, creating suction throughout the vessels. This suction (measured as low as 1/20 of atmospheric pressure) helps to draw water from the roots all the way to the top of the tree. If you were to cut one of these vessels, you could actually hear (using sensitive equipment) a hissing sound as air rushed back into these vessels.
How and when would “evolution” have figured this system out before all plants died? Just another proof of Biblical Creation.
